RIP, Sophia. This slice is for you.

Estelle Getty, Sophia Petrillo, on the golden girls has “gone to the big lanai in the sky” (according to TMZ).  She was 84 years old, just 3 days shy of her 85th birthday.

IRF reveres our favorite Sicilian and perhaps we need to go back and review IRF’s Tribute to the Golden Girls

I think all of us will sit around the kitchen table tonight, in our robes, having a slice of cheesecake in your honor.

    I’m so sad! This is truly a day of mourning.

    Critts, my young heart is broken. It’s times like these you with you had your friends here. I’d be getting the cheesecake out of the freezer.

    Where can we send flowers? ..And the card attached would say, “THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND”….”

    Definitely – we’d be sitting around the table with a cheesecake, Beverly, Jean, and Stacey. I miss the Golden Girls days. I think I might have to watch Season 1 tonight in her honor.

    I didn’t realize that she was only in her 60’s when the show was on.

    Blanche: My life’s an open book

    “In Sicily we had to resort to the lupara.”

    “Is that some sort of legal loophole?”

    “It’s some sort of sawed-off shotgun!”

    Blanche: What do you know? Sophia has a past!

    Sophia: That’s right. But unlike you, I didn’t penicillin to get through it!

    “I warn you, this could get ugly. Ever seen The Exorcist? Good movie! . . . Oops! Sorry, kids! Don’t stop on our account. Curse is over. Let’s go.”

    Sophia: I can’t believe it. Esther Weinstock is dead.
    Dorothy: Oh I’m so sorry Ma, How’d it happen?
    Sophia: She was fighting an oil rig fire in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Sophia: SHE WAS 88!
    Rose: Well, it’s good that she kept fighting right up to the end.

    And that Mrs. Getty did. She, like Esther Weinstock, was a fighter.

    I don’t have an exact quote, but her most memorable line for me is when she talked about playing “Hide the Canoli.” I have never looked at a canoli without hearing her voice.

    When I saw the news the first person I thought of was you lemare.

    That is so funny, because as soon as Dave heard she died, he said “I bet this is a sad day for Lemare. I bet she’ll make a blog posting about it.” And sure enough, here it is….. Thanks for all the laughs, Sophia!
